DEAN Smith is con­fi­dent Brent­ford will add to their ranks this week as he dips into the loan mar­ket to patch up his squad.

De­fender James Tarkowski and mid­field duo Toumani Di­agouraga and Jota left dur­ing the trans­fer win­dow, and Smith con­cedes that in­juries are also tak­ing their toll on the Bees.

“I have been look­ing for the last few weeks,” he said. “We’ve made a cou­ple of en­quiries but noth­ing has come off. I’m hope­ful some­thing will hap­pen next week.

“There are a few ar­eas we’re look­ing at.We’re shy at the back. We’ve got three cen­tre-for­wards not re­ally fir­ing, so there are loads of ar­eas we can strengthen.”
